Second Time's More Than a "Charm"

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I would like to personally thank Pat and Matt and the rest of the Ohana there. They really know how to express the concept of "Aloha". I work in luxury hospitality, primarily in the Guest Service component, so understanding how to anticipate needs and wants of my guests are essential to every day operations. I take my service seriously and can appreciate when I see people that do the same. Pat has gone far beyond "out of his way" to make myself and the rest of our party feel like more than family, he made me feel important and appreciated...when essentially, it's them that WE appreciate. My review from our first stay was filled with excitement about the property and dripping with compliments of our treatment. I wanted this review to focus on the heart of the business that you can still find prevalent here in Kona. Anyone can see the utter beauty of the property by looking through the site, but I feel that the the important thing about my interactions in dealing with Pat and his crew was the "immeasurables". First of all, when speaking with Pat, you can tell that he genuinely likes people (a virtue that is quickly becoming rare). Secondly, he is more than accommodating when it comes to requests. Thirdly, their attention to details and ability to anticipate their guest needs rival luxury resorts throughout the state. If you are looking at finding a place in Kona that not only immediately feels like home, but has the staff and management that other vacationers hope their "high-end" dollar includes, I would certain consider reaching out to Pat and Matt and the rest of their crew. I'm sure you won't regret it....

And to Pat, Mat and the Ohana....we look forward to our annual return. I may have one small request for the next one. But until then...MAHALO FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS !

Warm Welcome

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful house was made even more so by the warmth and caring of the owner. He did everything possible to connect and make our stay comfortable and special. We had relatives coming from another country to meet us and see Hawaii for the first time. He found someone who spoke their language and had a letter written welcoming them; true aloha spirit. He was present without being intrusive. We all were sorry to leave having felt the calm beauty of this lovely house. It has a koi pond that is the center piece around which the rooms all open towards. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Famiily Vacation!! Loved our Hawaiian Home!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place!! The house was perfect for our large family. It was super nice but not so fancy that we had to worry about our little ones getting into things. The Rain Forest off the lanai was beautiful. The kids loved taking turns feeding the fish in the pond. The pool was so much fun. We came home from the beach and the kids went straight to the pool. The tennis court was an added bonus. Pat & Matt were great! They made sure we had everything we needed. They also volunteered to help some of us paddle board. They made us feel like their home was our home. We loved it. We will definitely be back!!

Dream House

  • 5 of 5

15 of us from our golf club stayed here and we had a blast. Pat was extremely easy to work with and made sure we were set with directions and arrival instructions. Upon arrival we were all taken aback by the beautiful property, with the koi pond in the middle of the house and the pool and tennis/basketball court. Waiting for us was a welcome basket with snacks and some souvenirs, and in the fridge were some cold beers. Every night Pat put out another basket of goodies for us, what a great host! This was the perfect place for 15 guys to hang out and kick back after a day of golf. With two bbq areas and the pool and court we were all entertained. The house was definitely a highlight of the trip and all of us had a blast. Many already are planning to return with our families and friends and the golf club all agree will be back again next year. Thanks for an unforgettable experience Pat!

Better than we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for one week October 2014, for the Hawaii ironman, in which our son was competing. The bedrooms, the spaces for gathering to meet and talk, the dining facilities, the spectacular gardens were all better than any of us expected. Pat, the owner, was fabulous in the way he did everything he could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We couldn't speak too highly of this home and how we were treated. We are all hoping our son wants to do this ironman again next year. If he does, there is no question about where we will want to stay.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

The photos herein do not do this estate justice. We tried snapping pics of our own to share with Pat and Matt at a later date, but the unique layout and enormity of the property just didn’t allow for the panoramic view we hoped to share. It was magnificent, and our entire group was thoroughly impressed (I got praise all week long for finding it). We were a large group, consisting of both friends and family, and the layout was perfect for us. Although we were all adults, kids too would fall in love with this place (the lofts especially). Pat and Matt were the best, always going above and beyond what any of us expected. They not only provided drinks and snacks upon our arrival, but we also received surprises (big and small) throughout our stay. Plus, their knowledge of the local area was invaluable. The house was secluded enough that we got as much privacy as we wanted but not so secluded that a trip to the grocery store or beaches was a trek. Pat directed us to one of the most beautiful beaches we’ve ever seen (and along the way to it, we were able to stop at a lava tube/cave and take pics). The estate was also very close to the airport, as well as to a really great snorkeling site (turtles!!). The Big Island would have been an amazing place to visit regardless of where we stayed, but we truly can’t imagine a better place to call home after our day-long excursions. Pat and Matt, MAHALO!! And as mentioned above, we’ll be back.
